HORRY COUNTY, S.C. (WBTW) — The American Red Cross evacuation shelter for Horry County families impacted by flooding will move into a standby status.

The evacuation shelter opened at 5 p.m. at South Strand Recreation Center on Scipio Lane in Myrtle Beach, the Red Cross said. Supplies were delivered to the site Thursday afternoon. Starting at 11 p.m., the shelter will move to a standby status, as there are currently no families.

Another shelter is open at James Frazier Center in Conway. That shelter currently has nine people, according to the Red Cross.

Anyone entering the shelter will have to complete a health screening and will be required to wear a mask and social distance.

Any family planning to use the evacuation shelter is asked to bring any medications, specific child items, or anything else to make the stay more comfortable, the Red Cross said.
